A firm believer in the power of education to ignite the world, Dawn has spent many years teaching sixth-formers and adults and continued her mission online through the free Writing IT Better website. This is soon to be incorporated into Bude & Beyond.
Good teachers can inspire hope, and instil a love of learning, so Dawn is a firm believer in the ‘light bulb moment’ when students develop clarity of understanding – and switch on.
Originally a social science teacher within post 16 and higher education sectors, including distance learning via the Open University, Dawn specialises in study skills for those with non-traditional qualifications. Essay writing, note-taking, active reading and basic English skills are all areas she thoroughly enjoys teaching.
Soon, Dawn hopes to provide interactive online teaching via Skype and other methods, but for those nearby, she can also offer face to face individual tuition. She can certainly advise on the English/writing skills aspect of your work submitted online.
Meanwhile, she is keen to advise on essay writing skills and the development of critical thinking, with those key ‘stand out’ skills of evaluation, synthesis, and analysis to produce something truly special.
While Dawn cannot and will not write your essay for you, she is happy to guide you on the structure of your assignment, and on general essay writing techniques, so that yours stands out as analytical, evaluative and coherent.
Basic English Skills
If you struggle with grammar, punctuation and spelling, Dawn will happily work with you to improve these, so that you feel confident about the written image you present to the world.
If you struggle with active reading, note taking, and exam technique, Dawn will help you with clear guidelines and techniques that are proven to work, to make your learning more effective.
